Transforming Education in the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Areas
Southern Regional College, the largest provider of integrated education in the region, is working hard to build a strong educational future and focus across Armagh and Down, with three new landmark campuses planned for Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon.
These plans are based on an immediate and long term need to support educational and skill requirements and to support local and regional economic development and success for generations.
Working with the Department for the Economy to deliver an unprecedented capital investment of £95million across these areas, these exciting projects will be realised over the next four years.
In Armagh and Banbridge, work will soon commence on a combined £50 million investment in two new campuses. Felix O’Hare & Co. Ltd., contractor for the new Armagh Campus, has been appointed and the 14,000sqm development, due for completion in 2020, is expected to create 200 jobs and 25 new apprenticeships.
In Craigavon, we are preparing to deliver a new £45 million landmark facility with the imminent submission of our planning application.
